Can I Create Nuvi 350 "Where To" Categories?


I have read the faqs and posts but can't seem to find an answer.

When I load a POI file it is placed into the "Custom POIs" in "My Locations."

Is there a way to create a new category in the "Where To" section? I have "Food, Attractions, Shopping..." Can I make a new category called "Wifi?"

How could I do this?

Thank you smile


Sub Categories only

You can only create sub categories in "Custom POIs".

So Basically it would be "Where To", "My Favorites", "Custom POIs" Then the name of your folder.

Take a look in the below thread and also do a search for "Creating Sub Folders"

thank you!

Oh, I see smile That will work just as well I hope.


Organizing POI's

Hi Gumboguy,

You can organize your POI's any way you would like. It is important you do this on your computer prior to uploading. You simply create folders for each category you would like and organize the folders how you want. For example I have a Main folder called POI's and inside I create my first level of sub folders for example Retail Stores, National Parks etc... Then I place my POIs in each of those folders. In the Retail Stores subfolder I would have all my Best Buys, Walmarts, POI files stored.

Then I use POI loader to move these from my computer to the GPS. I find it easier to store them on a SD card that I leave in the GPS. When using POI loader just direct it to the Main folder and everything in it will be downloaded to your SD card. As you tweak and add or delete POIs only the updated and new files are downloaded so you don't have to worry about your SD card.

Once you get the hang of it it's really pretty simple.
